Award recognizes a commitment to giving
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Sept. 23, 2016) — Chrysler of Lawrenceburg was recognized as a large business honoree by the Secretary of State’s Corporations for the Commonwealth program. Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes launched Corporations for the Commonwealth last year to recognize Kentucky businesses that demonstrate a commitment to giving, a drive to improve local and/or regional communities, and a culture of giving within their organizations.
Chrysler of Lawrenceburg is owned by Ron McCauley, a Vietnam veteran who has realized much success in his decades-long career in the automobile industry. He has shown a deep commitment to giving to veterans’ organizations, sponsoring events to honor veterans and helping ensure fallen veterans receive a proper burial. At the ceremony, McCauley and Chrysler of Lawrenceburg donated a new car to the family of a local veteran in need and without means of transportation.
Corporations for the Commonwealth recognizes one large (more than 50 employees) and one small (50 employees or fewer) organization through a nomination process that is open to the public. Long’s Pic Pac in Pineville received the small business recognition last week.
